Stupid lake, stupid angler

13 posts in this topic

So I go out in search of some more of the nice perch I have been getting. I have thousands in GPS equipment, the best rods I can get my hands on, all sorts of perch lures, perch plastics and even the Marcum Camera to watch the perch. I enter in the super secret waypoint called "perch town" and off I go...then I get stuck. I have electronics, rods, reels, underwater cameras, even the digital camera to take some pictures of the perch in "perchtown" but do you think I would have a shovel?

So I am stuck and awaiting to be rescued from middle of nowhere, might as well drill a hole and fish while I wait. Wouldn't you know it I land on the crappie mother load? confused.gif I have fish on the ice, fish in the bucket, I'm trying to keep fish from flopping back into the hole while I am catching another...but I still have no shovel and I am still stranded.

Finaly my rescue squad arrives, backs up to my truck and gets stuck...would you think he had a shovel? So now I am three hours into my perch fishing trip and I have a limit of crappies (not the targeted perch)flopping in a bag while I am taking turns digging out a truck with a ice skimmer and the top of a Weber grill. crazy.gif

I think I might have to stick with crappies and pike, this perch fishing is brutal. laugh.gif

I've seen the ice skimmer used, but the lid of a weber grill?

You don't have a shovel, but you're prepared incase a picnic breaks out in the middle of Crappietown, USA.

Why didn't you use the frozen hotdogs for traction?

The bad ice is where most of the crappies are coming from.

By bad, we usually think of rough but I think if you get stuck that qualifies as 'bad' ice

      that's the spot I would go also. I tried there once this year, not much luck, but I did mark many fish.

      I have a couple of those covers.  Not sure what they are good for.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff
